I cannot recommend Will4adventure highly enough. I was nervous at heights, but now I consider myself a novice climber (which is surreal for me!) Will and his team are incredibly skilled and hugely professional, and perhaps more importantly their enthusiasm for being outdoors and at height is infectious! Wherever you are in terms of skill (petrified of heights or an experienced climber) and whatever you are aiming for (escalators with ease or a full-on mountain climb) you will be able to achieve your goals without any pressure, thanks to the infinite patience and dedication of Will and his team. I will be booking more one to one sessions and a family adventure day is also hopefully on the agenda so I can share my new skills/hobby. Thanks Will!!

I have just done the fear of heights course and it was absolutely amazing. I did so many things that I thought were impossible. Brian’s session in the morning was really good and I went into the afternoon calm. Jamie and Adam were brilliant they were encouraging and calming. They explained everything and gave you as much time as you needed to have a go. The way it builds up so you just push yourself a little bit more is good and when you have reached your limit that is ok . The group of people I was on the course with were excellent everybody was encouraging and helped each other. When I reached the top of the climb on the Sunday I felt capable of anything. Thank you so much Jamie, Adam and Brian. I will be back to do some more climbing.

I have just returned from the fear of heights course. It really was a great experience. The morning with Brian was very informative and I will be having a closer look at NLP and EFT.
The practical exercises with Will and Adam had me doing things I would have never done prior to this! Will managed the process in a very encouraging, step by step way- he said we might all reach a ‘no go’ point- and I did but I only have positive memories! The picture on the profile is me getting to the top of the final climb! You can’t imagine my relief and the sense of achievement will be a lasting memory.
Well done to the other guys and big thanks to Will and Adam- great fun and a pleasure to meet you all.

A huge thanks to Will, Adam and Brian for your leadership, encouragement and inspiration! It was an amazing weekend, despite the extreme weather, and i know I’ll be able to draw on the skills and techniques we learnt when i next have to overcome my fear! Can recommend this course to anyone who is finding their fear of heights is stopping them doing what they want to do!

Thanks for a memorable weekend. Since getting home a frenzy of googling has highlighted some skiing related articles and a book that follow and overlap with the same principles as the course. It’s good to finally have a more focused path to follow that I feel I can believe in and  I would never have got that starting point without the course. So a big thank you again to you and Adam and Brian.

How do we know we’re doing things right?

Check out the hundreds of 5 star reviews on TripAdvisor or on Google and see what people say about our Overcoming Fear of Heights courses. We have been running these courses since 2005 and we’ve been learning and getting better at what we do throughout all of that time. We also keep in touch with people who constantly tell us how much their lives have been transformed.

We reckon that for most people (90% plus) this will be a life-changing two days.

What do we do on this course to help you overcome your fear of heights?

This is a gradual process and it does not force you to do anything you don’t want to, or that you’re not happy to do.

Our fear of heights course begins with an indoor session looking at why you have this fear of heights and at rewriting the narrative that runs through your mind. To overcome your acrophobia, (fear of heights), you need to program your unconscious mind with a healthy level of intelligent awareness and then use that awareness to replace your irrational terror. In this first session light hypnotherapy with the whole group together may be utilised.

Anyone else running this therapy would end the treatment there. Thank you very much and good luck …

Our course is unique – here’s why

We don’t just run a therapy session indoors. Following the first session, we use our outdoor expertise as a medium through which you can further consolidate the progress made indoors. We now head outdoors and start again: this time using CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), or Exposure Therapy. With highly specialised leaders, we help you understand your brain, and then  help you to develop your confidence with heights.

This course will aim to achieve its objectives through three phases

1 – The morning of day 1. A session of therapy with a specialist therapist in this field.

2 – Afternoon of day 1. Out to the Peak District. By this stage your unconscious mind
will have made vast progress, but on a conscious level you won’t be so sure. We use a
system of graduated activities outside to demonstrate to you how far you have now come.

3 – All of day 2. This phase further consolidates upon your progress and we continue to
offer you opportunities to gain positive experiences at height.

Is this course a rock climbing course really?

No it definitely is not. We don’t expect people to come on this course who have any experience of rock climbing (because you have a fear of heights). We do however use our skills as rock climbing instructors to make high places safe. (This is our bread and butter). We use the high areas of the Peak District purely as a medium through which we can work with you. This is not a rock climbing course and we don’t expect you to have any experience as rock climbers or necessarily to ever want to rock climb. (Though people do change their minds!)

What is 7+4?

“I want to thank you again for an excellent weekend. I actually had quite a lump in my throat on Sunday evening on thinking that I wouldn’t see that group again, as we’d all been through a unique and powerful experience. I think yours and Brian’s fear of heights course is brilliant and on Sunday in particular I felt full of confidence and now can’t wait to do more . . .”
